Iriver h10 6gb sync issues

After going through the x-ray at an airport my iriver h10 had all the songs wiped out of the part that you view the albums in, they're still in the browser. Since I got back, everytime I've tried to sync an album to my mp3 it syncs the first track to 8% then crashes my mp3 and freezes windows media player. I don't know how to delete all the tracks off it and I worry that if I do I won't be able to get them back on. Someone please help!!

Re: iriver h10 6gb sync issues

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard

I can only guess that you are using windows media player to sync. So, just use the iriver program or open 'my computer', click onto iriver device icon, and paste in music.

Iriver clix2 1st gen

I would download the free program known as Media Monkey. The program will read the files that are on the Clix and allow you to edit the properties of each song so that the album art will be associated properly with each song. Warning: this will take a long time- each song has to be edited.

Another option si that you can check the iRiver website to see if they have a firmware update which resolves the album art transfer issue.

How do i add album art to iriver x20?

if your using wmp11 you should just be able to drag and drop.
if not right click the song/album and go to advanced tag editor, pictures and then add manually.

half the time it just wont come up because the tag doesn't read properly and the other half the album art that wmp11 downloads and applys automatically will come up!

its kind of up to chance! if you're lucky it works if not live with it its the X20!

ps the iriver plus 3 and itunes also can apply album art

Player wont play certain albums when getting close to being full.

There is a maximum number of songs allowed (1000 for 4 GB) so you are probably over this magic number - they are still listed just don't play. I don't have solution for you - just a reason why.

Iriver H10 20GB - i can't access my music through Artists or Albums

Have you tired doing a "Database Refresh". It's located on the main screen under "Settings". Go to Database Refresh and check "Yes". How much music you have on your player will determine how long the refresh will take. If that doesn't work possibly run the Firmware Updater from iRivers' web site and only update the database, do not do a complete "Recovery" or all of your music will be erased as that choice reformats your hard drive. Only choose "Update Firmware"

Format my iriver H10 [5GB;color]

Will not syncronise with iriver plus, media player does not recognise devise

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
